Dear DHS expert,

May I request your kind guidance on how can I merge IR, KR, and HR files in STATA?
Currently, I am using the following command. But the total observations are multiplied.

use "HR"
rename hv001 v001
rename hv002 v002
merge m:m v001 v002 using "KR"
drop _merge
merge m:m v001 v002 using "IR"

Thank you and looking forward to your kind reply.

Best,
Kaung Suu
